Right now, Van Winkle bourbons and ryes are fairly easy to find in my area. These include Pappy 20, and the 15 and 10 YO bourbons (each 107 proof) plus the 13 and 12 YO ryes. Not hugh amounts around, but enough (beyond my bunkered stuff).
Given that Julian is now in with Buffalo Trace, will this change the marketing of Van Winkle bourbons and ryes? If not, then no worries. If so, then maybe it's time to increase my bunker supplies because I REALLY don't want to hear one of these days that three envied states (you know who you are, at least early in the day ) are the new major distribution markets for Van Winkle whiskeys.
